'm shepard smith. this is the fox report. it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news and nato reports it has a military plan ready should it need to defend turkey from an attack by syria. that statement is its strongest since syrian forces last week began firing shells across the border into turkey. it also ignites new fears that that vicious civil war in syria could soon turn into a regional conflict. a civil war that activists say left more than 30,000 people dead. syria claims the deadly artillery attack last wednesday was an accident, an outcome of that civil war. but it's important to note that many rebels used turkey as a safe haven to launch attacks against the syrian regime. so there is that. now turkey reports it has moved additional military assets to the border region, including more than two dozen f-16 fighter jets. jennifer griffin on the top story at the bottom of the hour. she's live at the pentagon tonight. it looks like it can be contained? >> well, there has been six days of artillery fire across the border between syria and turkey. at first it looked like it

that the war on terror's over, al-qaeda has been defeated. the nato intervention was a success. that's one reason why their explanation of what happened on september 11 has been distorted, beginning with the idea it was a spontaneous reaction to the famous muhammad film. whether that's a coverup or ideology blinding reality, i don't think we know but the house committee needs to look at whether ideology blinded them before the attack. >> you advised the romney campaign. do you think the investigation by the house committee has political overtones? >> i'm not sure how much the house committee's going to be able to do before the election. the state department has its own administrative review board. that won't report until after the election. my guess is that it will be news organizations that uncover whatever additional facts come out before the election. i think there's a clear national interest, whatever the outcome, that we need to know whether the administration's policies themselves prevented adequate security in libya, egypt, tunisian, yemen and elsie. >> do you think the policies pre

they invoked the defense clause of the nato treaty and called for an emergency meeting in brussels. the other thing turkey has been doing over the past month or so is massing forces along their border, and those forces both the tanks and their artillery was used in artillery barrages that lasted about 18 hours against targets there inside syria. as for the syrians, they say this was an accident, they promise it will not happen again, and it appears as though the syrians have enough problems on their hands, they do not want to start a war with turkey going forward, though, you do have a dangerous dynamic set up here. all of a sudden now curbing key is on a war footing. it is ready for respond. if the syrian rebels under a swag operation launched a shell into turkey to try to draw a response that is something that could turn he's artillery barrages in an all-out war that could happen in a matter of a couple of hours in the middle east. right now the next 48 hours are going to be the most critical. we think the syrians have decided to take their licks, they have not yet responded to the t, rsk i

of firing across the border yet. it's interesting that the secretary general of the nato military alliance of which turkey is a member, he came out and said he's happy that the turks have restrained themselves, that they have not retaliated more forcefully thus far. and he also sent the message that the syrians should be listening to saying that nato is ready and prepared to defend turkey if it continues coming under attack. this will be something important to watch. if nato gets drawn in, if turkey gets drawn in, then it could also bring in russia and countries like iran which have been very strong committed allies of the embattled syrian regime. >> syrian civil war and we'll see what happens with turkey. ivan watson respect thank you. >>> it may be the most contested wildlife permit in a decade. one aquarium wants to import beluga whales from russia.

a day away. but first, we'll start with afghanistan. nato's secretary general says there's a possibility that western forces could be withdrawn from afghanistan more quickly than previously planned. he suggested the deadly spike of insider attacks has hit the morale of former troops serving in the war zone. and today's front page of the "new york times" claims the u.s. is abandoning its hopes for a peace deal with the taliban. the "times" reports american officials are essentially giving up on what was once a critical component of their strategy in afghanistan. they're opting for a far less ambitious plan that would have the afghans work out a deal among themselves once u.s. combat troops withdraw by the end of 2014. richard engel has been covering the conflict for nearly 11 years and filed this report from the afghan capital. >> reporter: this woman is about to die. executed for adultery. the man she was with got off scot-free, the taliban recently filmed this video of their justice as a warning and to say they're making a comeback. some 30 miles away in the village, we saw few signs of
